Hey there – Larissa + Bailey here!

As two Colorado Natives who have photographed over 150 couples in 100+ locations across Colorado, we specialize in creating a different kind of wedding day that is just as adventurous as you are!

When you choose us to guide you through the process, you get wayyyyy more than just a photographer. You get a planner who helps you create the most epic day you can dream of. You get your personal Colorado tour guide who shows you the beauty and wonder of this state. You get a friend who gets that picture taking can feel awkward.

We use our experience and knowledge to craft a different kind of wedding day that feels completely authentic to you. Want to hike to a high alpine lake? We can give you trail options for that!

Soon after I picked Bailey of We, The Light to be our elopement photographer I knew I made the best decision- she was very responsive and funny and kind! Leading up to our elopement we almost had to change plans because of multiple fires, and Bailey was ready to come up with a new plan if we needed so we could still get married! On the day of our elopement, Bailey was able to capture pics that are gorgeous, and express me and my partner! We laughed and had a great time during the shoot, and she made us feel comfortable. Bailey is a great choice!

Larissa is AMAZING! She was SOOO helpful and definitely made our intimate wedding so much easier. All of our plans fell through because of the weather, but she helped us ease our way into a new plan the day of, and it was incredible! The pictures she took are everything I could envision, and she has such a sweet demeanor. Highly recommend if you want someone to connect with for your special day and receive BEAUTIFUL photos that you can relive for the rest of your life!

Working with Bailey at We, The Light Photography was an awesome, laid back, super easy experience. From the planning, the lead up to the ceremony, the day of the elopement, and all the post-ceremony pictures, we were thoroughly impressed at how professional but still down to earth and fun-loving Bailey was. She helped to create a schedule and the permits we needed for the wedding day. When the day of the ceremony arrived, Bailey was really easy to work with and was able to capture everything that my husband and I wanted on our big day. When we received our photos a couple of weeks later, we were absolutely blown away by how beautiful they looked and how she was able to capture everything we envisioned it. If anyone is looking for a wedding/elopement photographer for the future, We, The Light should be at the top of your list.

Like many others, in the chaos of 2020 my husband and I decided rather than wait to get married we wanted to elope. We were connected with Bailey at We, The Light Photography and she helped us plan a magnificent wedding day in under 2 months, during peak fall wedding season. The Planning Process From day 1, working with Bailey was easy and stress-free. She took on all the location and event planning and all we had to do was look at pictures and take on the difficult task of picking between a number of beautiful sceneries. We are not native to CO so we often asked Bailey for her opinion on what would give us the most fun and beautiful wedding day and she didn't lead us astray. The Wedding Day I have nothing but amazing things to say about our wedding day. Bailey was our wedding planner, photographer, and tour guide all in one. When things we awry (unexpected road closures) Bailey quickly pivoted and handled it like a pro. She was extremely courteous, kind, and made the whole photo taking process feel effortless. The Photos We are absolutely thrilled with how our photos turned out. Bailey was able to capture us in a way that felt very authentic to who we are. They are beautifully composed and elegantly edited. Our Christmas cards this year are going to be hard to beat! If I could do it all over again I would pick We, The Light every time.

Larissa is seriously the most fun and adventurous photographer we've ever had the pleasure of knowing. She makes you feel so comfortable and beautiful in your own skin and even if you aren't a good picture taker, Larissa's photos will prove to you that you can be! We love her so much and so thankful that she was our photographer for our engagement shoot and wedding. Could not recommend her enough!

Emily & Kevin Mohr

Bailey and Larissa were all-stars! Like a lot of people living through the pandemic, our wedding plans were derailed and We, The Light stepped up to help us have the wedding day we'd always hoped for (though we didn't know it!). Bailey and Larissa were communicative, open, enthusiastic, professional, and most of all huge sources of relief when it came to planning our wedding. When wildfires upset our second plan to have an elopement in Rocky Mountain National Park, Bailey was immediately in touch with us about back-up plans, helping us move past every setback and getting amazing photos to help remember our day. We cannot recommend We, The Light enough!

Ellen Aster

I knew I wanted to work with Larissa after just a few minutes on her site. Her personality shone through and I knew it would help make our special day comfortable. She worked with us extensively on location and didn't miss a beat when our location had to be changed a few times due to Covid. On our special day she grabbed so many candid shots that I never would have thought of but loved. My one regret is that we did not get to spend more time with her in person due to COVID. Highly recommend if you are looking in CO!

We found We, The Light Photography through googling information about eloping in Colorado. We read several of their blog posts and it convinced us that eloping versus having a huge wedding was the right decision for us. We pushed up our wedding date from Summer 2022 to Winter 2020 so we really only had 6 months to get everything planned. We reached out through their website and Larissa got back to us quickly - which was so appreciated since we were working with a much shorter timeline. Three words to describe Larissa - personable, professional, and talented. It was so easy to work with Larissa and she makes photo sessions easy and enjoyable (especially for those who aren't too used to being in front of a camera). She asks all the right questions to make sure she captures your wedding day exactly how you want it. And with all the uncertainty this year plus my husband and I making last minute changes to the schedule, she was always gracious and patient and totally cool with putting together a plan A, B, and C for us. With all the work that goes into planning a wedding, I was so thankful to have Larissa as our photographer. On our wedding day, I didn't have to worry about a thing when it came to photos and the schedule. She handled that all and took us to the most beautiful spots in RMNP for our photos. During our photo session, I loved that there were moments where my husband and I would just us hang out, be ourselves, and read letters from the family while she took photos. It was really nice to have moments where we slowed down and just enjoyed each other. There were moments where we'd be drinking in the views and I'd forget we were in a photo session. When we got our sneak peak photos back, we (and our family) were in awe at how amazing the photos came out! The photos were gorgeous and natural and we're so excited to have them forever. Plus she's got that sunset/golden hour thing down to a science! If you're looking for an elopement photographer, look no further. You're in great hands with We, The Light Photography and Larissa.

We had the most magical experience with Larissa at We The Light Photography. Between the craziness of 2020 and the fires and area closures, Larissa was so reassuring and provided enough options and backup options and backup backup options that we managed to have such a wonderful elopement and were so happy with our experience. I think we would have had the best day and photos no matter where we got married. Larissa was so communicative and thorough throughout the planning process and the day of, she was so fun and friendly and made us feel really comfortable. We happened to arrive with the most beautiful night sky and full moon, and we could not be happier with our photos! Seriously she is the best!!!! A bonus, she got the most amazing photos of our not so photogenic pups!

Like so many other couples in 2020, our large 250+ person wedding had to be postponed. I found We, The Light Photography and reached out FOUR WEEKS in advance...by miracle, Bailey was somehow available for our New Years Eve wedding ceremony. Bailey was incredible throughout the entire process, and made it so easy planning a last minute ceremony within a month. She was organized, helpful, knowledgeable and all around is just a true gem to work with and be around. For two people who are not naturals in front of the camera, Bailey made us feel SO comfortable and confident the entire time. The turnaround time for getting our photos back was remarkable. I'm so forever grateful for how our last minute wedding turned out - and SO much of that is owed to Bailey and her talent. No amount of thank yous will ever be able to show We, The Light Photo how grateful we are for their work!!!!! HIGHLY HIGHLY HIGHLY recommend - 10/10

My husband and I wanted to elope in Colorado and honestly debated getting a photographer because we are pretty private, low-key, and not necessarily "photogenic" kinds of people. We decided to go with We, The Light Photography and are absolutely glad that we did! Bailey was super helpful leading up to our big day (especially considering COVID and wild fires)--she kept us informed and went above and beyond to help us prepare for our ceremony. Bailey made us feel comfortable and at ease for our photos--it felt very natural and not staged. She was also very flexible and when one of our sites we wanted pictures taken at was not great weather-wise she had suggestions for other places. The place we ended up going gave us some of our favorite photos! Our photos captured our day perfectly and it was really wonderful to share them with our family--especially since it was just us two and Bailey for our ceremony. We would absolutely recommend We, The Light Photography. The knowledge and professionalism helped us to have a great day that led to amazing photos. After our shoot was over and we were dreaming about lunch, Bailey suggested a sandwich shop (Scratch Deli) for us to stop by on our way to our rental cabin and that was delicious as well!

Andrea Barber

We could not be happier with Bailey and We, The Light Photography documenting our elopement! Bailey was so kind and professional throughout the day, and really made us feel so special. She was nothing but attentive and helpful throughout the entire planning process and made it so easy and stress-free. Wish we could elope all over again every time I see our photos!

Kaitlin and Josh Williams

My husband and I decided a long time ago that we wanted to get married in the mountains in the winter. Due to COVID-19 and varying levels of excitement for trekking through the snow among family members, we decided to elope sans family and friends. Bailey made the process so easy and fun, and the pictures turned out great! I cannot recommend Bailey and We, The Light Photography enough. Thank you for capturing our day and making it so special!

My husband and I absolutely adored working with Bailey for our January 2021 elopement. Our original plan was a big ol’ wedding set for May of 2020 and then, well, you know what happened. I went from being the most excited bride to a mess of nerves and tears. When things went from bad to worse, my husband and I knew we couldn’t have the big day we’d originally planned. After a lot of heartache, we started to talk about eloping. What began as a joke led to finding the We, The Light website and then a call with Bailey. That’s when things really turned around. Talking to Bailey about what our elopement could look like made me feel excited for the first time in months. She was kind, thoughtful, and listened to our story and all of our concerns. After that initial call, things moved quickly with Bailey checking in on us and sending over every resource we could need. She even sent us a holiday card before our big day! On January 11, my husband and I headed out to Rocky Mountain National Park to meet up with Bailey. She made us feel comfortable from the start! My husband and I can be a little shy, but Bailey was so warm and encouraging. She knew what cues to give in order to get great photos while also making the day feel natural and intimate. Let me tell you – the photos she took blew us away! Bailey made us look like rockstars! The most challenging part of this whole experience has been deciding which photos to display in our home (because I want to display all 200). Bailey made our elopement so special. She really listens and her desire to make her couples happy shines through from beginning to end. If you’re looking to elope in Colorado, I cannot recommend Bailey and We, The Light enough!

Omg, stop your search and reach out to Bailey at We, The Light Photography for your elopement. We could not be happier with our photos - but more importantly, we had an amazing day together in the mountains. We had planned a 100+ person wedding in October 2020, and things were so uncertain during the pandemic that we decided to elope in March 2021. We still wanted to have a great day but we weren't exactly sure what we wanted... so we reached out to Bailey for an initial consult and felt great meeting with her over FaceTime. She had great tips and tricks, and she was super dedicated to finding the right spot for us to elope. Bailey is professional, lighthearted, funny, and kind. You won't be disappointed - best decision we made. Our photos show it!

If you are reading this because you’re shopping around for an elopement photographer and came across Bailey at We, The Light, just go ahead and stop your search right now. Seriously. I think if you and your partner are planning to elope in Colorado, you must be looking for an easy going, talented, easy to collaborate with, brilliant superhero who is going to make your special day so memorable, right? Those are just the base line qualities of Bailey. My wife and I decided to elope and hire Bailey and we will remember her for the rest of our lives. She made our day so perfect. She is wickedly talented, crazy responsive and open, funny, and wickedly professional. I cannot rave more about her. She’s perfect and you should hire her. Right now.

Working with Bailey was a DREAM - she is the absolute sweetest and so fun to work with! When we reached out with an ambitious timeline of planning an elopement in 6 weeks, Bailey didn't even bat an eye at it. She knew exactly what to do to keep us on track, and from start to finish, Bailey was incredibly organized, responsive, and truly took time to get to know our preferences. I should also note that being from out-of-state and never having been in Colorado before, my fiancée (now husband) and I were initially nervous about planning from afar, but we felt completely at ease with Bailey! On the day of our elopement, Bailey was professional, funny, and always made sure to make us feel comfortable and confident in front of the camera. She managed to capture perfect, beautiful photos of our normally camera-shy and awkward selves, and I'm always shocked at how gorgeous these photos turned out. We absolutely love them and will cherish them for years to come. We couldn't be happier or more grateful for our decision to work with We, The Light... they seriously knows how to make magic! 10/10, absolutely recommend!!!

Selena & Kelvin

Highly recommend using We, The Light Photography, Bailey did an incredible job!! We continue to receive compliments on our wedding photos months afterward. Planning a wedding can get hectic especially if you are not a local to Colorado. A huge benefit with choosing Bailey is her ability to match your location preferences on paper to a real life location. My wife and I were amazed with Bailey's ability to find exactly what we wanted in an elopement wedding. Snowshoe hiking up a mountain where we would ultimately get married was something we could only have dreamed of. After the wedding she had the perfect picture locations planned to further add to our experience.

We were so lucky to get to work with Bailey on our elopement this last month! We originally reached out to Bailey in July of 2020 right after we got engaged and we knew instantly she was the perfect photographer and elopement planner for us. Not only do we love the same shows and podcasts, but she made us feel secure in our decision about doing an elopement! Bailey was so communicative over the YEAR we spent “planning”’our elopement. She sent us personalized scouting guides of locations in the area we wanted to get married that broke down how popular each location was and what parking looked liked. We had multiple phone calls throughout narrowing down the timeline, photos we wanted to make sure we got, and finalizing all the details. In May, about two months before our elopement Bailey helped us find a new location due to my mom needing an accessible location and because Bailey has so many connections she was able to connect us with a local homeowner in Silverthorne who rents out the meadow at their ranch. The day of the wedding Bailey was an actual magician. She made our day perfect and exactly what we wanted. As a plus size person, I don’t often feel pretty, but Bailey made me feel beautiful and the photos of our day are gorgeous. She made sure we stuck to our timeline and helped us transition from our tiny ceremony with our parents to our hike up Loveland Pass. My husband and I love the outdoors and hiking and Bailey was able to capture everything we love in our photos. They highlight everything we wanted: an adventure with just the two of us. If you are wanting to have a dedicated photographer who will help you plan literally *everything* about your day, CHOOSE BAILEY at We, the Light Photography.

Larissa from We the Light photography is simply amazing. She is warm and friendly and made us feel so comfortable right from the first time we spoke with her. After talking to a couple different photographers, we knew we wanted Larissa to be our photographer and she even rearranged her family plans to be a part of our wedding. She kept in constant contact with us throughout the planning phase and sent us many vendor recommendations, some of which we used and they were perfect! She never once made us feel pressured and was open to our ideas. The best part of working with Larissa though, was how comfortable she made us feel in front of the camera. The photos are absolutely breathtaking and we couldn’t have been happier with Larissa. From day one she did everything she possibly could to help us and make our day special. If I could do it all over I wouldn’t change a single thing. Worth every penny to have Larissa as our photographer. Thank you Larissa!!

Ariana Glibbery

Bailey was wonderful and professional all the way from our first contact to the day she delivered our photos. She is incredibly talented and very easy to work with. Bailey always responded quickly and had invaluable input for our wedding. Would recommend to anyone!
